  • Sharks set many marks in meet

    The Shelby Sharks swim team hosted the Lakeside Seahawks and Triton Swimming, 240 swimmers in all, at its Harvest Classic this past weekend at the Family Athletic Center at Clear Creek Park.

    “We had one of the best home meets ever!” Sharks Coach Jeremiah Heat said. “Our goal this weekend was simply to give our best and to perform with the skills we have learned in practice. We have done that and more.”

  • Karas sisters ready to run

    Earlier this season, Collins cross country coach Stephen Drawbaugh said that seventh-grader Gabby Karas told her older sister, senior Caterina, that if it came down to the end of the race and the two were neck-and-neck, she’d let her win the Class 2A KHSAA State Cross Country Championships.

    That very well could be the case Saturday at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, although we’ll have to find out about that finish.

  • Titans hope to push their way to...

    In Round 2 of the Class 4A state football playoffs it’s Round 2 between Collins and Spencer County.

    The Titans beat the Bears, 21-0, on Sept. 23 in Taylorsville in a 4A, District 3 game. When the two meet at 7:30 tonight at Shelby County’s Robert Doyle Stadium, the stakes will be higher.

    The winner gets a spot in the Region 2 championship game. If the Titans are victorious, next Friday night they would host the winner  of the game between North Oldham and Western.

  • Fielding powers Titans to runner...

    Devon Fielding has been running for a sub-17-minute time all season.

    Fielding, a junior at Collins High School, finally achieved that goal Saturday in the Class 2A, Region 3 meet at Shelby County. Fielding finished fifth overall, helping the Titans to a second-place finish, covering the 5,000-meter course in a school-record and personal-best time of 16 minutes, 57.81 seconds.

  • Karas sisters finish 1-2 – with...

    If it's the cross-country postseason, it must be Caterina Karas time.

    Karas, Collins’ senior runner, captured the Class 2A, Region 3 meet Saturday at Shelby County. The defending state champ, she covered the 5,000-meter course in 19 minutes, 7.92 seconds – almost 8 full seconds faster than her younger sister. Seventh-grader Gabby Karas, who was rated No. 1 (one spot ahead of her older sister) in the most recent state coaches rankings, was second in 19:15.65.

    The result was a surprise to one sister, but not the other.

  • Mistakes plague Rockets in...

    Some familiar problems, and even some that Coach Todd Shipley believed his team had already kicked, plagued the Shelby County football team again Friday night.

    The Rockets had five turnovers on offense and some blown coverages on defense in their season-ending, 63-13 loss against John Hardin in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs in Elizabethtown.

  • Brooks (3 TDs, 12 tackles)...

    Either way you looked at it, Friday night was more, or Moore, domination by the Collins football team.

    The Titans mauled the Mustangs, 49-0, in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs at Robert Doyle Stadium for their seventh consecutive victory.  

    During that streak Collins has outscored its opponents, 303-38 (43.3 ppg to 5.4 ppg), and has four shutouts.

    Friday night it was Moore of the same.

  • Karas sisters go 1-2 at regional

    Collins' Karas sisters finished 1-2 at Saturday's Class 2A, Region 3 meet, but not in the order it has been most of this season.

    Senior Caterina Karas beat her younger sister, seventh-grader Gabby, to win the 5,000-meter race on the Shelby County cross country course. Cat Karas finished in 19 minutes, 7.92 seconds, while Gabby was almost 8 seconds back in 19:15.65.

  • Shelby County falls 63-13

    The Shelby County football team's season came to an end Friday night.

    The Rockets fell 63-13 at John Hardin in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs in Elizabethtown.

    The Bulldogs (11-0) built a 42-0 halftime lead before Shelby County (2-9) scored its first touchdown on Brandon Ford's 49-yard run 12 seconds into the second half.

    John Hardin then scored three more TDs before Chase Manica returned a kickoff with 56 seconds to play for the Rockets' final score.

  • Collins mauls Moore 49-0

    The Collins football team opened the Class 4A playoffs with a 49-0 mauling of Moore on Friday night at Robert Doyle Stadium.

    Senior Michael Brooks scored three touchdowns, including one off an interception return, and rushed for 55 yards while also recording 12 tackles and one fumble recovery in the Titans' seventh straight victory.

    Collins (9-2) will host Spencer County, which beat Doss 20-8 tonight, in a second-round playoff matchup next Friday night. The Titans beat the Bears 21-0 in Taylorsville on Sept. 23.
